About Memphis Virtual School
Effective schools are a result of families and schools working together to ensure children are successful in school. Memphis Virtual School (MVS) allows students in grades six (6) thru twelve (12) in the State of Tennessee to meet academic requirements in a virtual learning environment. It is our goal to ensure that every child meets grade standards. This will require the best efforts of all of us (parents, students, the home school, and Virtual School) to work together as a team. As a program of Shelby County Schools, Memphis Virtual School uses online courses to offer students in grades 6 - 12 an exceptional virtual learning experience. Each student works through a curriculum at his/her own pace, while achieving the tools needed to succeed.
